Friends joke that I should have been an event planner because I'm always planning weekend trips and researching new bars to try but that's why I love NYC - you will never run out of things to do. I'm a big fan of music festivals and dancing in the street, something that I really miss from living in Chicago. I moved to NYC about four years ago and feel like I can finally call the city my home - too bad I still have an Illinois license...I should probably get that changed.
I'm very fortunate to love what I do for work but because of that I find myself dedicating too much of my life to my career. I'm finally at a point that I can start making my personal life a priority and I plan on making the most of it. It also doesn't help that I'm applying to grad schools now but I'm determined to have a balanced work/school/personal life!
